The Au Pair contract will make both Au Pair and family's expectations official and will make both parts stick to what it is established in it, although it may be a little bit flexible depending on the family and the Au Pair and their relationship.
Please discuss it with your family and sign it before beginning of your Au Pair stay.
Although being an Au Pair can't be considered a job, it is always better for you to close a contract with the family in order to agree on respecting each other exceptations.
Following a list of issues that should be written in the Au Pair contract:
Your working hours
Who will be covering the travel costs
Your free time
Accomodation and board

Some chinese families provide their Au Pair with a health insurance in China, but this only covers the cost from certain chinese hospitals. It is still recomended to purchase an international health insurance from your home country to cover the cost of an international hospital of western standard. Don't forget you will need a health insurance, as well as an accident and liability insurance in order to ensure a safe stay.
